As for "extreme ideological polarization" of US people,
I think you, Ryland is one of them who are responsible for it.
I myself is not religious in any sense,
but it is not difficult for me to think over
how Christians are upset by the Jesus Dance in your site.
After all, you Americans should learn much from the Europeans
how to cope with the religion and religious people.
It is not clever to deny the Evolution Theory,
but it is also stupid to deny the religious thinking at all,
because mankind has not yet found other means
to cope with the fear of death than religions.
As for "isolationism and arrogance" that trj fears,
I think US can never be more arrogant than now
by falling into isolationism.
From my point of view, what is arrogant is that
you think yourself to have a right
to kill some political enemy by your missile or that
you pay big money to the information of the enemy.
This world is not Great Western.
You like to say that US liberated Iraqi People
from the tyranny of Sadam,
but then why can't you believe in the Iraqi People!?
If you think you are doing right thing,
why don't you move them by justice, not by money!?
